Shimmering on the surface and full of heart, Alice Junior centres on the titular Alice, a trans YouTuber determined to experience her first kiss.

The film introduces Alice as a fortunate youth who is living with her father in the Brazilian city of Recife. Alice has the world’s attention with her vlog series, which is decorated with emojis and bubbling with style. Her perfect world comes crashing down when she moves to a small, conservative town in the South. Unexpected obstacles arise when Alice is enrolled in the town’s Catholic school, but Alice’s unbreakable personality allows her to thrive, even when her peers and teachers are difficult to handle.

Alice Junior targets Gen Z youth with shiny visuals and contemporary elegance, but its message transcends generations. The film is a touching portrayal of a young woman who wants nothing more than a normal high school life.
